In Pictures: B-fleet Balloon 719 towed back to depot

The Easter weekend saw another period of Gold heritage tram operation in Blackpool although not everything quite went according to plan. On Easter Monday, 17th April, B fleet Balloon 719 was allocated to operate the first northbound service of the day to Bispham but unfortunately on arrival at Bispham it was declared a failure and had to be towed back to Rigby Road Depot by Unimog 939. Mervyn Williams was on hand to capture these images.

719 sits on the centre track at Bispham waiting for rescue.
